Services and Pricing

We’re here to make your final goodbye as simple and easy as possible. We’re with you every step of the way.

 What to expect

Once you have made the decision to euthanize your pet, you will need to complete and sign the Euthanasia Consent Form. This form includes a waiver that your pet has not bitten anyone within the past 10 days. Please contact us if your pet has bitten you or another person during this time.

Upon arrival at your home, Dr. Benson will administer injectable medication to help relax your pet. If your pet is still eating, a delicious and long-lasting treat can be used as a distraction; the injection may sting momentarily. More than one injection may be required to help your pet become completely relaxed.

Once your pet is relaxed, Dr. Benson will give the final injection. Pet euthanasia is a massive overdose of anesthesia that causes the brain to shut down, followed by the heart slowing and stopping. This usually lasts one to three minutes though some pets may require additional medication.  Dr. Benson will guide you through the entire process.

At this time, you and your family can say your goodbyes. Home visits typically last 30 to 60 minutes.

Things to think about or prepare ahead of time:

  • Consider lighting candles, playing relaxing music, laying out blankets and pillows, or reading a poem or prayer.
  • Please let Dr. Benson know if your pet is fearful, anxious, or aggressive, as she may choose to use an oral medication first to help your pet relax prior to administering an injection
